The Newlin Series: "“Making Sense of Women’s Textile Work in the Long 18th Century”
In this lecture, Emily Whitted and Eliza West share their expertise in women’s textile work in early America. Both expert craftspeople in their own right, West and Whitted will intertwine the stories of stitchers, knitters, and spinners found in the history books with their own hands-on knowledge of fiber and craft. This talk will explore not only the different types of textile work which women performed, but also the blurred lines between domestic and professional labor.

Emily Whitted is a current PhD student at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and Eliza West is an independent scholar and a former Lois F. McNeil Fellow at Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library.
